The Battle of Lexington is commemorated every year on the third Monday in April. The highlight is a historical reenactment of the battle that pays tribute to those patriots who first fell on the Lexington Green on the morning of April 19, 1775. It is performed by members of the Lexington Minute Men Company and His Majesty's Tenth Regiment of Foot.
Patriots' Day 2018 was a great success, thanks to all of our sponsors, reenactors, volunteers and town employees, who as usual went above and beyond to make this a memorable experience for our thousands of visitors!
The schedule of events for Patriots' Day weekend includes a full range of activities including:
- several battle reenactments
- the Liberty Ride Trolley Tour
- historic house tours
- pancake breakfasts
- a road race
Other events occur in April along Battle Road.
